I am a computational biologist with a long-standing focus on integrative research of epigenomics, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics in human complex diseases, such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases, through computational approaches while utilizing bulk and single-cell multi-omics sequencing data. I received training in medicine (M.B.B.S.) and bioinformatics (Ph.D.), and I have extensive experience with genome-scale multi-omics data integration research. I also led team efforts on epigenetic research for several Pan-Cancer Atlas (PanCanAtlas) groups within The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Research Network. This collaborative effort concluded in 2018 and led to a series of landmark publications on multi-omics integration research in human cancers with combined citations of more than 20,000 times.

As an Assistant Professor of Neurology of the McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center (UTHealth) at Houston, I have expanded my research interests to the field of single-cell multi-omics research and artificial intelligence in cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. The cancer-Alzheimer’s disease nexus is an emerging field that I am actively involved in for the purpose of transfer-learning using the immense knowledge accumulated from human cancers, focusing on therapeutics.
